This is the man who created my favorite superhero. He had an incredibly fasinating life, and I would strongly recommend reading The Secret History of Wonder Woman by Jill Lepore to learn more about him and his famous heroine. After reading it, I realized that every story about Wonder Woman's creation that I'd seen/read in the past was an oversimplification. Dr. Marston was a man who was ahead of his time and yet wouldn't have quite fit in our time, either.
Fun fact: He invented the lie detector (hence why he chose to give Diana of Paradise Island a lasso of truth).
Hamilton and Laurens
This one I decided to draw by hand instead of using my laptop. I still feel more of a sense of control with a pencil. Enjoy!
The nature of the relationship between Alexander Hamilton and John Laurens is subject to debate among historians, but I happen to agree with the evidence that points to their relationship being a romantic one. I have drawn Lams drawings such as this one for a long time (they're part of what inspired me to do this blog). This one I drew today for a blog posting by my historian sister, Megan Gackler, in which she discusses Hamilton and Laurens's relationship in detail. You can read her article here.
